Our family thoroughly enjoyed this two hour walking tour with Tom. We chose this tour as an initial introduction to Oxford. The tour was very informative with an excellent history of the town and university, given by a current Oxford student. We came away feeling inspired to come back and visit some of the many Oxford sights that were pointed... More

Eleven years ago, I had six days to explore Oxford. Before I went, I did lots of research on what to see etc. It would have been nice to have had the Footprints tours available then. What made this tour so special was that our guide, Tom, is a student and native of Oxford. Tom took us around the heart... More

Very entertaining and yet a very comprehensive tour history-wise. We had a great time and would definitely do it again if I am back in Oxford. Thanks Luke.

I feel compelled to let the world know about our wonderful guide Tom. Despite the heat and other handicaps, Tom managed to keep the whole group engaged in the history of the city in a tour that was building up until its climax with the last story. Better than any paid tour I ve been on. 100% recommended. Wish we... More

So as a tour guide of a small group of young, intelligent, fun girls there could be no better guide than Tom. His knowledge of Oxford combined with his wonderfully entertaining anecdotes and wit made for the perfect tour of Oxford. His friendliness, charm and good looks also added to the overall enjoyment and he actually became the mascot for... More

Took a Sunday afternoon walking tour of Oxford with Luke as our guide - he was great fun, very quick witted and personable! The tour was just right for me as it was informative, interesting and kept to a good pace. The time passed quickly and I enjoyed Luke's jokes and quirky stories throughout. A wonderful introduction to the city!... More

Excellent tour! You can really see and understand Oxford's history; besides the guide Tom makes the tour so much fun. Entertain yourself and get to explore the city in one. Aside from great knowledge you can see they (the guides) all make an effort to make you comfortable and make sure you have a great experience.

Where to start? Oxford itself is a treasure chest, brimming with jewels of every shape and colour and on this wonderful, wandering, walking tour one is brought face to face with some of the very brightest jewels that the box of goodies has to offer. The very finest of which was undoubtedly our tour guide. His passion and understanding of... More

It was baking hot, full on lunchtime sunshine and the streets were packed with Graduates, their families, Tourists and locals, yet Tom provided an excellent 2 hour brief guide to part of the history of Oxford and the University to our very International group. Starting and finishing with the burning of the Martyrs (Latimer, Ridley and Cranmer), we were guided... More
